No.3 The Playstation 3 (9 out of 10)

When I told Otter Keeper that the Playstation 3 was my next favourite household object he gave me “the look”. He said no-one would want to hear about the Playstation 3 and it’s not a good thing that I play it. But it’s ok because Otter Keeper is wrong.

Otter playing on the playstation 3

In reality the Playstation 3 is actually only a problem for Teddy. This is because he spends too much time watching us play it when he should be in the other room doing activities young teddies should do. As a result Teddy doesn’t get enough exercise and that’s another reason he’s getting a bit fat. It’s also meant to improve his reaction skills and this hasn’t happened either. Teddy’s reaction skills are terrible. I’m still waiting for him to react to most of the things that happened last week.

If you’re not very good at games (like Teddy) you get the game over screen. This is a sad time because it means you have to start over again. Sometimes when I offer Otter Keeper advice on how to play the game but at the wrong time, we get the game over screen more than usual. When this happens I get into trouble.

So when Otter Keeper is playing I try to keep really quiet and concentrate on picking up tips instead (But I do still like to whisper to Teddy about where Otter Keeper is going wrong). Unfortunately It’s really hard to keep quiet when your watching the Playstation 3 because it’s so exciting. And this is why it has achieved a 9 out of 10!


If you want to leave me a comment (and please do because otters love comments – Keeper reads them to me and it makes me happy) about this story please go here:

    Uh, oh Playstation 3…you and Teddy and Otter Keeper have to be careful, I lost a brother to Playstation 3. He got it for Christmas and we haven’t seen him since! This may be one of my favorite pictures of Otter!

    You ARE quite the adorable Otter. If you weren’t Otter Keeper’s I’d be happy to take you home and spoil you.
    I have to give you some advice. You must be careful around Playstations. They are very devious items and can suck one into playing for hours and hours instead of going outside into the sunshine. You must keep Otter Keeper away from them and take her Outside into the fresh air and only let her use them at night before she goes to bed.
    Don’t be naughty though. Be a Good Otter for Otter Keeper and kiss Teddy for me.

    We haf to agree wif yoo about most of da best household objects, ‘cept we don’t haf a Playstation 3…or even a 2 or a 1. Mom plays games on da laptop tho and sometimes we get to chase moving objects around on da screen but dis can lead to mom getting mad and pushing us out of da way. We don’t like dat.

    Thank you for your glowing endorsement of this important household item. I think they are essential equipment for capybaras, too! I am going to make sure my keeper sees your rating.

    Oh Otter,

    Why have you so many fantastic things we havezn’t ? I don’t know what a playstation looks like but it seems very funny and good for exercise since you aren’t only concentrated, you’re physically involved. I’d like to have a playstation because it seems much handier than a laptop where our few internet games are stored. I think a playstation would be a much better for playing car race : it would be easier to drive the cars in the curves when you just have this little thing between your paws and Otterkeeper probably trained with for his driving license. The laptop is too static and when I play against keeper, my car always gets off road because I’m not in a good position in front of it ! Keepers fingers are larger than my paws and sometimes, when I feel I’m about to lose, I just jump on the keyboard or try to push her hands off. If I’d have a playstation, I could play just against myself or TT and I’d have a chance to win. There’s someone who’s meaner than keeper, it’s the stupid person playing against you, when you make a scrabble match. It has always a better word than you and when you lost, it mocks you giving you advice : “Louloute, all beginning is difficult, you need training and then you’ll make it : try it again !” AGHHHHHHHHHH!!! And when you try to answer him and tell him, it just won because it was cheating : it’s superbrain and it uses very strange words like “xi” or “wu”, nobody knows but when I lose my temper and write AGHHHHH!!!or BRRRK!!! or when I can’t place so stupid letters as XXHHZZZY and I just write ZZHHXXY, it doesn’t say anything, it just replaces my letters again and again till I get mad and begin to insult it but it doesn’t react till I end the program and this stupid ghost player just answers “Do you really want to save the match ?” – NO,NO,NOOOOOOOOOO!AGHHHHHHHH!!! BRRRK!!! ZZHHXXY! I’m sure you haven’t scrabble on your playstation and you can be sure you won’t miss it. Keeper bought it for me because she said I’d learn easier to read with this play – teachers, they can be so annoying sometimes -. I can’t because there’s no scrabble program for otters : it doesn’t speak otterish, it doesn’t understand me and it’s so upsetting but keeper just smiles the more angry I get. Kate probably manipulated the program : she’s behind every “game over” screen and looking at your angry otterface.
    Perhaps, if I’d have a playstation, I’d like internet games but I’m not sure, I genrally get upset or excited and I sometimes could bite into the screen. That’s the reason why the games are on our old laptop : probably I haven’t the right tool and perhaps I should ask Santa for a playstation with special ottergames. You must tell your keeper we need new ottergames to download from your site. I especially miss a juggle game like WII FIT: there would be less breakage in our home.
    My keeper is a bit tired too : writing comments every day is a hard job indeed for Otter fans too…And all these wonderful stories and illustrations he makes for you are the nicest birthday presents ever and, as difficult it is for you to find out your favourite household good, as difficult it is for keeper to write a better story every day and to make a cuter portrait of you. He does a great job and it’s the truest way to show you how much he loves you. Me and keeper we LOVE your very nice picture today : it’s the first time he shows you in this position. We like above all how he drew your backlegs and paws ! I’d like to tickle your feet but probably it would make you loose your game and this would be unacceptable for us !

    Hear from you tomorrow ! We can’t wait which good will get the palm (I don’t know whether this French expression- keeper says something like a metaph….???- also exists in English – I like it though and I ask keeper everytime when she’ll give the palm for the balcony !

    Louloute and keeper and TT who is not very useful for scrabble since he doesn’t speak at all, post man would be more helpful I think since he is a letter man.
